The problem of fixing one area of healthcare is that it shows others as an issue.
It's an area where people don't really realise that we've effectively killed off one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse through modern medicine to the point where 5 figure death tolls are critical world scares while even 100 years ago 7 figure death tolls through single disease outbreaks were just one of those things.
We could cut ALL unemployment benefit and still have another £7.5bn to find. Even I can't believe that the Tories would cut all unemployment benefits though... Pensions are locked in. I doubt IDS will play too hard with child-related benefits. That leaves disability and low-income benefits.
It'll be interesting anyway. Not in a good way, but interesting.
An absolutely disgraceful thread full of defamation. Full of "my mate said" and "I 100% guarantee it's true" defamation about a very sore subject for our game. Rugby league has one of the most diligent and thorough drug testing regimes in the world and has made it far harder for people to both abuse and be victims of this blight on our sport.
And they are victims just as much as they are banned drug abusers. Those who put it off as "but everyone does it" doesn't see the wrecks that are produced and ignored once they retire from professional sport having done permanent and irreversable damage to themselves both physically and mentally. Lockwood's career is as good as over yet those who supplied him with the drugs get on with ruining lives.
If the subject starts up again in this forum and anyone defames rugby league, players, clubs, coaches or similar without showing definite proof that's been tested in court then they get permanently banned regardless of previous good conduct.
